Local veterans asked to participate in Memorial Day Parade

Haywood County will again honor its men and women who have served in the military with a Memorial Day Parade at 11 a.m., May 28, on Main Street in downtown Waynesville.

The parade will feature several National Guard and Reserve Units, as least one color guard, Civil War reenactors and Veteran organizations in Haywood County. In addition the 440th Army National Guard Band of North Carolina will participate, as will the ROTC Units from Pisgah and Tuscola high schools. Vintage military vehicles and motorcycles are also welcome.

Any veteran who wants to be in the parade should contact the Veterans Office. Veterans can walk or ride on a float in the parade. Bleachers will also be set up in front of the courthouse for disabled veterans who cannot walk or ride in the parade.
